Chapel of St. Anne

The chapel is located at the foot of Kozubová Mountain in the village of Milíkov, in the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy Mountains, at an altitude of 982 m, about 35 km southeast of Frýdek-Místek. The chapel of St. Anne is part of the 18 m high stone lookout tower. The lookout tower is accessible only during church services (i.e. 4 times a year), otherwise it is closed. However, the key to the tower is available for rent at the nearby Kozubová cottage. The chapel was built here on the initiative of parish priest Ploszko from Hnojník in 1936-37. Jan Kisza from Ropice managed the construction according to the project of the architect Dawid from Český Těšín. The consecration ceremony of the completed building made of Godul sandstone took place on St. Anne’s Day on 26 July 1937 with the participation of about 10 thousand people. The inhabitants of the region contributed to the construction with their financial donations thanks to a public collection.
